Osang Gwon “Recontemporary” at Waterfall Mansion

From September 7th through October 12th, 2016,  Waterfall Mansion and Gallery will present their first major solo exhibition of the acclaimed and renowned international artist, Osang Gwon. Using contemporary photographic prints from the internet, or images taken in his studio, Osang Gwon builds on renaissance sculptural motifs and modern inspirations (e.g. Alexander Calder’s “Stabiles”) by layering patterns and shapes to create a new fantasy world filled with dynamic constructions, color, and movement called photosculpture. In the age of digital, the borrowed forms and images blur the boundary of past and present and create new tension and complexity. Osang Gwon rediscovers classical conversations and connects them to a modern aesthetic. His continuous study on the various forms of historical sculptures are naturally applied to his sculptural form and by mapping it with contemporary photographic images it is reborn as “Re:Contemporary” sculpture. It is a reinvention, a rebirth, and a RECONTEMPORARY exhibition.
